Leave Feedback on Games for the Galaxy S 4

By Bill Hughes

When you come in to the Play Store looking for games for your Galaxy S 4, remember your best path to finding a good purchase is to read the reviews of those who have gone before you. Although more than a million users have commented on Angry Birds, most games do not have that kind of following.

One could argue that your opinion would not move the overall rating for a frequently reviewed game like Angry Birds. The same cannot be said for others.
